St. Bernard of Clairvaux Parish Stewardship
As our parish continually grows and changes we reach out to all to lend your time, talents and treasure to our Stewardship initiative. We seek to be guided by the Holy Spirit to discern how each one of us may fill one of the many needs of our parish.
All of us are being asked to participate in a week of service to the parish. For you who are already a ministry member, for example, ushers, lectors, or choir, attending the sessions will be a celebration of your service and recommitment to your calling.
For others, have you considered becoming an active part of one of the liturgical ministries but are not sure where is the right use of your talents? Then sign-up for one or more of the gatherings where you can meet and learn from those already involved: what is it all about, what do I have to do to join, how am I trained, etc.
Do you have a heart for babies, children, or perhaps engaged couples? Is the Lord is calling you as a minister in our Baptism prep, Marriage prep or Children's Liturgy of the Word programs? Stop in the parish office and talk to either Rose, Sr Jackie or Father Tom about your interests.
A Prayer for Service Selection Process
God our Maker, thank you for adopting us as your children and inviting us into the work of building your kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. As we consider what that means today, fill us with your Spirit. Guide our thoughts and conversations, and lead us into a deeper knowledge of who you are, and who you will have us be. In Jesus' name, Amen
